TAMPA -- Cal State Bakersfield allowed three second-half goals Tuesday night and lost 3-0 at South Florida.
The Roadrunners (2-5-1) and South Florida (3-1-4) had a 90-minute delay starting at halftime because of a power outage.
When play resumed, South Florida's Lindo Mfeka scored just two minutes into the second half. Mfeka added another goal in the 81st minute and a breakaway goal in the 85th minute gave the Bulls an insurance goal.
South Florida had an 18-8 edge in shots and 6-2 advantage in shots on goal.
This was CSUB's final match before it begins its inaugural Western Athletic Conference season Saturday at UNLV.
"I gave our team our toughest non-conference schedule ever and we are too young this year to play NCAA Tournament-type teams on the road," CSUB coach Simon Tobin said in a release. "We played well tonight but the lights went out at halftime. ... We didn't find our rhythm after the delay and conceded goals from naive mistakes."
